    Hi guys,

    Apologies for this thread and maybe asking a silly question. I've just recently bought a Mac again and haven't owned one since around 2008. I know retina is still pretty much new tech and have noticed that not all sites look at that good on it. I can handle that but I am wondering if there's any work around for the images I upload to the internet? So for example:

    If i take a screenshot of a specific area on my mac and look at it, it looks good. High quality and no blur. But once it's been uploaded and viewable in the browser it looks blurry and looks like I've zoomed in. Is there a way to fix that?

    If not, not to worry I'm sure I will get used to it over time.

    Thanks to anyone who replies!

    That's because when you look at the picture on a non-retina screen, it will look big because the actual UI is 4x as big as it would be on a normal screen. But if you're trying to say that it's zoomed out, try and find the image url (right click) and then once the image comes up by itself, if you click the image it should show the correct size.
